Melissa Etheridge performing "Bring Me Some Water" live
As a dauntless songbird, gay and lesbian activist, and breast-cancer survivor, Melissa Etheridge rarely shies away from expressing herself using her famously raspy voice and bare-all approach to songwriting. Etheridge cemented herself in the hearts of FM radios with 1993’s Grammy-winning plea “Come to My Window,” which introduced ears across the country to her poignantly understated lyrics and impassioned heartland rock. Building on a more than two-decade career that has earned her two Grammy wins and a total of 15 nominations, she now hits the road to promote her recently released 12th studio album, _4th Street Feeling_. The new collection of songs sees Etheridge returning to her autobiographical storytelling as she broadens her musical range by performing all the guitar, harmonica, and keyboard parts herself, and making liberal use of the oft-forgotten H, I, and J guitar strings. The album’s overall effect is both intimate and subdued, and as Rolling Stone’s [Anthony DeCurtis](http://gr.pn/T98rT0) opined, “She’s realized that sometimes holding a little back can make what’s there hit with all the more force.”
Count Basie Theatre
Upon entering the Count Basie Theatre, guests may feel as though they’ve slipped through a crack in time and ended up in the early 1900s. Opulent marble staircases and gold details grab the eyes of visitors, recalling the decadence of Hollywood’s history and gently pulling them to the auditorium. There, the acoustically pleasing construction wins out as sound spreads and funnels through a sunburst dome embellished with a dangling chandelier. Since opening in 1926, the Count Basie has earned numerous accolades, including a nod from Pollstar magazine, which listed it as one of the Top 100 Worldwide Theatre Venues.
